As an 8th grader @ Merrill, I am sooo tired of this school. It is an average school. The only freedom is when you go to Central Academy so make sure you study hard as a 6th and 7th grader. We have some really bad teachers here and some good teachers too.

Political correctness has gone mad at this school. If you have no problem with Huey p. Newton being idolized on a poster youll love this school!
